If aluminum then yeah I suppose SS is not so great. All my outdrives were built with SS bolts. But they can get stuck. If anti seized-greased and well sealed, then why not.
I have asked around for aluminum bolts before and none seem to have such things. And they would be weak too. Maybe bronze bolts better, but also easier to buy SS.

SS would be loads better than carbon steel.
